Excellent education with caring, professional Instructors. Rigorous program, but you expect that with an MSN/FNP program. "Focus," on campus assessments were challenging, as instructors expected top quality assessment abilities, but they were more than willing to help where needed. Students need to be self-starters and well motivated to keep up with the demands of on-line learning. Able to pass my FNP Boards on the first try. Graceland University gave me the basics needed to complete a career goal.

I went through the Graceland University campus based nursing program for my undergraduate degree , several years ago and had a great experience then. I'm now pursuing my DNP with an emphasis in Organizational Leadership/Process Improvement, but this time it is all online. I was anxious about the online experience but have found it to be extremely beneficial. Normally, in person classroom discussions, can be more relaxed... less requirements for participation. The online discussion boards commits you to thinking through the discussion assignment. I've met some great peers from all over the country with unique experiences and goals. I highly recommend Graceland University's online DNP program!!

There are no cons. My FNP graduate program is very good and has great professors who are willing to help and understanding. Like many programs the FNP programs is rigorous.

Graceland is a respected school that makes learning easy by providing accessible online classes with great support online and over the phone. The only think that I would change is more scholarship opportunities for graduate students.

The program allows for career advancement without having to put your career or family on hold. The on campus visits provide a great hands on experience to compliment the online course work. Although new to the program, I am sure I have made the right choice for my RN-MSN program.

My time at Graceland University has been exceptional. The professors are attentive and accessible, as well as genuinely concerned with the students' success and wellbeing. The staff is very helpful and accomodating to each student's situation and needs. The Independence campus is a smalll, nice facility with ammenities such as a kitchen and fireplace. The campus, the students and the faculty can be compared to a small family.

I am in an online program that is allowing me the flexibility that I need as a single mother and a full-time employee. Graceland also has a great program that is allowing me to go from my associates to my masters degree, I am extremely excited.
